Did this project lose funding?

It is on hold at the moment to finish up the new website & some work on Easy TAZ Mini.

As for a coating to be used for reflective or odd materials, I have used LP inspection developer for weld or other crack inspection. It is a spray talc-like material that is matte white when it dries. A few light coats and the resulting surface is very 3d scanner friendly.

So the original version of this has been dropped. The code developed is out there, should someone find it useful.

But the company BQ in Spain has done work on software and hardware for a new free/libre/open version of a 3D Scanner:

https://github.com/bq/ciclop

I kept trying to find the "catch"--an NC license, the patent, the one part of it they locked down, but they didn't. They are doing it right and awesome. They even designed it with FreeCAD and KiCAD, afaict.

But you can't order the boards now, at least not for the USA. I haven't reached out to them (much) yet, but when we get a breather, we'll see where they are at. It could happen that much faster if we could throw resources at the same project.

So, not anytime soon, but we are definitely still interested.

Thanks,

-Jeff

Looks like you can get a full all up kit for about $400 US from the UK. They indicated in another thread they would be willing to ship one over here: http://www.3dprintworld-aylesbury.co.uk/scanners/ciclop

I remember reading of some group that did the dance with a M$ Kinect v1... But was very persistent that they would not develop for the V2 Kinect.

I'm not entirely sure on M$'s scope of this camera, I haven't seen any license issues when it comes to programming against it...

I've been blown away by what the Kinect v2 can do!!!
Just playing with some of it's SDK's, the examples have created 3D mappings of my living room, and can in "real-time", give me bird's eye...left...right... views and keep up with my movements...

It's a bit of a resource hog... but man, I have a new respect for IR :shock:
